A Person Could Develop a Cold: Readers Cast Role of Adelaide in Film Adaptation of Guys and Dolls
19 May 2013
Garrett Cannaa: Or they could just edit in footage of Vivian Blaine. Her Adelaide is pretty much impossible to beat.
For more traditional casting, this might be the only way to go. Blaine, who made her Broadway debut as Adelaide and played the part in the movie as well, is considered iconic in the role. This option might cause some complications with smooth editing and film quality, though.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
